SEOUL/TOKYO (Reuters) - North Korea (news - web sites) threatened on Saturday to double the size of its nuclear deterrent and the United States rejected its conditions for a resumption of talks, leaving the two nations in a dangerous stalemate.

A day after North Korea set three conditions for returning to six-party talks on its nuclear programs, it warned Washington to drop its “hostile policy” aimed at unseating the communist leadership or face a more potent atomic arsenal.

“If the United States persistently pursues its confrontational hostile policy toward the DPRK (the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) from the viewpoint of escapism, it will only compel the DPRK to double its deterrent force,” the main newspaper in North Korea said in a commentary published by the official KCNA news agency.

North Korea has never said how many nuclear weapons it has and usually refers ambiguously to its “deterrent force.” U.S. officials say the North could have between two and eight weapons.

On Friday, North Korea said it would consider returning to the talks if Washington drops its hostile policy, is prepared to join a compensation package in return for the North freezing its programs and allows discussion on South Korea (news - web sites)’s nuclear experiments.
